Defiance Express (Newspaper) - December 27, 1895, Defiance, Ohio Daily Republican. Second year. C. J. Thompson publisher. Member select list of Ohio Dally Aud we it newspapers. I entered at Defiance Ohio Post office As second class matter daily delivered to City subscribers per week. To cents. Long distance Telephone Northwestern Telephone no 34 a 14 Friday dec. 2. Office i Ost Eler Ballan. Santa of opera House. &ms5 Southern m s w. H. Mcclintock Down among the Haw eaters. Because of the loyalty of this element to the doctrines of Jefferson and Jackson. Hut free Wool was More than they could stand and they moved in a body to the Republican Camp and have made the county just As reliable Republican now As it was formerly democratic. While excellent crops Are raised in the Hills it is an Ideal grazing country. But the people can not compete whith cheap foreign Wool and for that reason have identified themselves with the party that stands pledged to restore the Tariff on that commodity. The fruit crop especially that of apples was unusually Large this year and thousands of barrels of cider and hundreds of thousands of bushels of dried apples have been shipped to out Side markers this year. Matters in the mining regions Are unsettled. The men have Little work and of course have effected Trade very material at every Point in the Hocking Valley. Indeed Trade has never re gained the standing it held prior to the great strike of 1884. With unexampled facilities for cheap mining the Hocking Valley has been made the Battle ground of labor and capital while less favored regions have la Een benefits by these dissensions. It seems strange that these two great factors can not arrive at a common understanding and reap if we had their if 1.50 Coal we could forego the or if we had the we could forego the cheap Coal. Under the circumstances it is reasonable to think that Providence has been a Little partial to the Hocking Valley in the matter of fuel. W. H. Moc an additional lawyers charge.

We would suggest to some of the petitioners to go and see the Stone abutments on the Evans port Bridge known As the a county line a Bridge just a Little ways East of Evans mgt it.

Logan dec. 26, 1895. Khrist Mas is Over hut i have just slipped away for an hour from a lot of youngsters who Are still using their tin horns Drums and other enemies of the ear with Energy that would do credit to the successful partisans at the end of a he ated political Campaign the chorus opened Christmas morning when a White Robed delegation filed out to look at the tree that had been toy Laened by old Santa Claus. Old or. Jack in the Box the tin Soldier War horses doll babies and numerous other presents raised the storm that will not cml until the tin Soldier has been drawn and quartered not until the War horse has lost his Tail and head not until the paint and varnish has been knocked off the horns not until Daylight is through both ends of the Drums not until the legs and arms of the dolls Are amputated Tot until old Jack in the Box has been pulled from his seat and the Spring that controlled his actions crammed Down into his toe of some ones Boot or shoe. But As the precedent has been established a Good Many years one has reasons to give thanks on this Day and a that the blessed children have left any part of the House standing when it is All Over As Sancho Panzo said of sleep a god bless the Man that invented when we left Defiance. Monday it was raining and had been for a week. As we travelled South the rain fall seemed to increase in volume and the streams were brim Filiti. We left Defiance at 6 88 monday and i do not believe that there has been an hours intermission in the storm since we reached Logan. Christmas the air was As soft and Balmy As a May Day the rain was warm and caused the Green grass to shoot up its Heads As if it was the sea soc when Spring shakes off the shackles Cit Winter and while the Low burning jets of natural sputtered and purred in grate and stove to keep off the dam windows and doors were swung wide open As if in the summer time. It was a strange Christmas hut As they raise an excellent Quality of turkeys in the Hocking Valley we lived Well despite vie inclement weather. The business men in this Section have Many complaints to offer Over the Hob Day Trade. With them they say times j have been hard. The people have j bought very sparingly and in the Spring merchants will he carrying heavy surpluses in some line unless there should Bee. Radical change in the weather. Exon then there would be hundreds of persons who because they had passed the first of the year without being forced to buy clothing and the like will try to tide Over until Spring no matter How severe the weather might become. Iii this Hocking county Wool growing was formerly one of the principal industries. The revision of the Tariff Laws and the placing of Wool on the free list not Only crippled the Industry hut practically filled it. The South and Western Section of the county had been largely settled by germans and the county politically had been democratic from the time it was instituted if they would work As one person in placing the unlimited wealth of the re Cion in the commercial marts of the country. The manufacture of fire Brick paving Block and fire proofing is one of the principal industries in the town of Logan and has in the past employed a great Many men. All of the factories of that class Here have closed Down hut the Hocking Clay manufacturing co. This company together with the Haydenville mining and manufacturing co at Haydenville six Miles East of this dry make the Hayden amp Hocking Street paving Block and the Hayden sidewalk Block Many of which have been Laid by g. M. Weisenberger in the City of Defi Anet. The Haydens of Columbus own the controlling interest in both plants. In addition to paving blocks they make a Fine Quality of sewer tile but Are just now engaged in the manufacture of fire proof such As is used in government buildings and the sky scrapers Iii Chicago new York and other leading cities of the country. Many of the better class concerns that formerly engaged in making paving Block have retired from the Field. Competition became very Sharp prices were Cut All to pieces and finally it became necessary if a firm hoped to place its products in a municipality to expend More than the profits of the Sale would amount to in influencing the people to buy. The better class of factories were the first to turn away from such conditions and even the makers of Low Grade Brick have been forced to close Down their plants or heroine bankrupt. It will very Likely he some time before High Grade paving Block will again touch the Low Mark they have reached in the past year or two. But whether they do or not it is to he hoped municipalities will he removed from the suspicion of having been influenced by a Money consideration in the adoption of this or that kind of a Block. While the Best flaying Block in the world is made in Logan the town emulates the Shoemaker and tailor and has not a single paved Street though its sidewalks Are largely Laid with the Hayden sidewalk Block. Tile reason Given for not paving the streets is this that the town is underpaid with clean gravel and that no matter How Long or How hard it Rains the water soon passes away and there is comparatively Little mud to contend with while that is largely True it occurred to me that the town ought to pave its main Street As a matter of advertisement if nothing More. The lord is Good to the floor. We know that in Defiance by the number of children that come to Grace and bless our Homes hut in the matter of fuel we do not think we have received exactly i fair Deal while the town of Logan twelve Miles away from the Coal mines the very Best Quality of soft Coal is placed in the Coal bins Here at #1.50 per ton. It is excellent fuel for Domestic use. Because there is not a surplus of Ash and it is free from blinkers. The streams adjacent to mines in the monday Creek Valley alone have become filled up with nut Coal sufficient to keep Defiance county warm for a dozen years. I not Only have the streams been tilled up and obliterated hut thousands of acres of Bottom lands have been covered up with Thi it Fine Coal and ruined. This has led to much litigation and there is hardly a term of court that some Farmer is not awarded damages for land destroyed by the waste of lands in the Valley. It is a shame that this fuel can not be utilized thousands of families Are suffering for fuel when hundreds of thousands of tons almost in sight of their Homes is going to waste. At my mothers biome they use natural . Two fires heat seven rooms in the House. They pay #1.80 per fire per month and do not use a meter of persons use meters then they pay for the actually burned and the Cost of fuel is less than #1.80 per fire per month. Was it because some of the Large stones had already fallen out of the abutments and Many More ready to fall the taxpayers would like to know. Hanford the Only Republican commissioner on tired his protest As did. Also the Williams county commissioners. Perhaps this is a Good reason Why or. Kline should he re a jointed to accept Clem Mere a jobs. If the people of Defiance county would Only come Down to Defiance and look Over the books and note Tho donations that have been sanctioned by the Hoard of commissioners to Rich corp orators the past few years they would not so an honest auditor and a just and upright judge to cast their votes to continue this sort of business. Treasurers hive been found Short to tile tune of thousands of dollars and auditors have issued themselves orders without Lief or License and walked off with the fax Myers Money. Tax inquisitors have been ignored because it was claimed they were kickers and worlds without end. All sanctioned by the com missioners yet the gang hushed by recent Victory Over the tax payers of Defiance county have now the unlimited Gall and monumental Cheek to ride Over the county night and Day endeavouring to secure petitioners asking honest offi gals to continue gang Rule. The life dog had ill health and he wan not Worth living committed suicide. A dog belonging to James Nuthall the Engineer of no. 8 engine company of Louisville deliberately committed suicide recently bystanders say. The dog was a Tine setter and was highly prize by his owner. The animal had been sick for several Days and aced Queerly. A vacant lot adjoins tile engine House and about 4 of clock in the afternoon As officer Collins was passing the lot he noticed the dog running at the Fence with great Force. The dog would butt the Fence with his head a great Deal after the fashion of a Goat. A or in i collected and watched Hie queer antics of the dog for some t to. In a so tort time the dogs Cha i was All bloody and bruised. Several men started toward the animal to take him away from the Fence. The dog ran past the crowd and into the Street. A cart heavily loaded with Brick was a sing at the time. The cart Belonge i to Scott Newman. The dog started to run under the cart but the coloured Driver lashed it with his whip. The dog refused to move though he was whipped severely and the horses knocked him Down Anil tramped on him and a wheel of the cart ran Over his head. Ile died in about ten minutes. Maak it reports. Boy had been imposing upon the Little Fellows and one of them hit him with a switch and ran the big boy pursued him threw a Stone at ii in. Cut a bad Gash in his head an i Laid him up for a week or two. The grand jury found a True Bill and after the closing speech by the solicitor the judge charged the Law very fairly and then asked if tiler was any other charge that counsel desired. Glenn Rose Aud with some ton of apprehension. Said a i believe your Honor omitted to charge that self defense May justify an a yes a said the judge As he straightened up a yes gentlemen there is such a Law and if you believe from the evidence that this great big double jointed big listed Young gentleman was actuated by fear and self defense when he ran aft r that poor Little puny tallow faced boy and because he overtake him. Picked up a Rock big enough to Knock Down a steer and threw it at him and knocked him senseless then you can find for the defendant. Any other charges brother Glenn a a i believe not a said Glenn. High heeled boots. They have a greater influence on health than Mont people think. It has been stated that a Young lady went one Day to an Oculi St with trouble in her eyes which threatened frightful results. She was already in a state where Reading was out of the question and other entertainment was fast becoming a torment. The Oculi St looked at her with his professional Wisdom asked her various questions and then suddenly amazed her by asking her to put out her foot. The foot in its kid Boot with a wicked Little High Heel was thrust Forth. The doctor eyed it a moment with a stolid face. A go Home a he said a and take off those heels. Keep them off for a month and then come to me again and Well see How the eyes Ina Mouth the eyes were Well and the Young lady Learned by her experience and a Little Wise talk How near she had come to having no eyes at All. It serves to show that there is the possibility that with that instrument of torture constantly at work in the Center of the foot where so Many delicate nerves and tendons lie that Are so intimately connected with All the other delicate nerves of the body there must presently come disarrangement and disease that May work fatal mischief with the health. The dog on guard. A canine member of the Post office department. One of the Post office officials of Boston is the owner of a bulldog that he would not part with under any circumstances. This dog considers it his special duty to ride to and from the depot and Post office on the mail Wagon and keep guard of the mail sacks. Ile has followed this custom for a number of years. One night after the unloading of the mail car he started to ride As usual on the bags on the Wagon but when the po., toll be was reached he was not on Board. This was strange for heretofore no temptation had Ever b in Strong enough to lure him from his Post. The sacks were delivered and As the Man called them Over one was found to be missing. The Wagon Driver hurried Back to look along the streets. After searching Over a Good part of the route he suddenly discover i the dog sitting in the Gutter wagging i. Tail and evidently overjoyed at being recognized. On going up to him the Driver found tile dog sitting on the lost mail sack. Ile had evidently noticed it when it fell from the Wagon and had immediately jumped off and stood guard Over it. Smuggling Mexico. In Mexico when a foreigner Dies and his friends desire to Send i body to his native lad the government exact a tax of 5250 for the privilege of Shipp no it Over the Railroad. In 1881 Larry Flaherty s brakeman died at Silao on the mexican Central. Ile was a poor fellow. This Mother who lived in j Colorado but who had Corge on to nurse him want d his body shipped Home. She raise Tao mopey and the boys took up a collection hut could Only raise $72. Then Tom Williams a Jovial conductor put up a scheme to get the body to the states. Tile funeral was conducted in the usual manner and poor Larry a body was placed in the ground. Two pesos fixed it with the gravediggers and they neglected to fill in the grave until aft r dark. In the interim Larry a holy was to Ikon from the coffin and placed in an old sack and carried to in obscure hut where it was place i in a trunk and taken to the Den t the s boy had secured a rms to Al paso form a. Eta Hertz and Tom Williams went along to Carrr out. The a Obieme at paso Del Norte the Dunk was Nice to a Casa de h impedes or hoarding House. Mud the Corpse was again transferred to the sack mrs. Flaherty went to Al re so an o secure i an undertaker who. With a Plain Box in his Wagon drove up the a it a to a Point designated. Abon in of clock Tom. With Bis Peon earn Cibort. Managed to gel across the River without attracting attention. Larry a body a tenderly placed in the Box Ani taken up town to the undertakers where it. Was properly prepared placed in a casket and shipped to his Cid Home. Tom Williams returned to Silaos Tfelt. And was Ever afterwards known As the a cadaver smuggler of the Rio Grande. Highest compliment. General cranial Gruff Lar Nurk after listening to a simple Bacilli. A the finest compliment i Ever had paid me a said a fatuous Ballad Singer to a writer a was by general Grant. You know he was not very fond of music and once when we happened to be stopping in the same hotel for the night and after the performance i was asked to sing for him i did not feel very much like complying. In fact i refused him at first because i had heard that music bored him dreadfully and he Only agreed to Hoar me because the committee that entertaining him included me in the attractions. About Midnight in the parlor of the hotel i Mot the general and shortly afterwards i sat Down to the piano to play m3 own accompaniment to a simple Ballad i had selected. The general sat near the piano and i kept my Eye on him so that i could see if he were going to get tired and if so i was going to quit As Short As i could reasonably do. As i Sang however i became interested or the Melody and forgot the genital and. Sang straight through to the end. Then As the last Strain died Awa y. The general Rose suddenly and As he brushed his hand across his eyes he said a confound your music a Ann walked away. It was not quite what i expected hut it was the greatest compliment he could have paid me and i told him so when later he came and apologised for having up Okwit As he a valuable find.
